So to save some money I have decided to workout at my house. I have an olympic weight bench that inclines and BB with around 300 lbs of weight so it should be plenty. I think I should be able to hit pretty much everything with what I have, but I was wondering if anybody knew of any other good Barbell exercises. Right now my goal is MASS.
I am already doing bent over rows, deads, squats, shoulder press, flat bench, incline bench.
Any other good one I was thinking upright rows...
I don't any help greatly appreciated

Throw in a couple of sets for each bi's & tri's (e.g. bb curls, close grip bench or skull crushers) and you can go quite a ways with that setup. I would recommend getting some kind of pull-up bar too. It's old-style, but basing your workout on several heavy, compound movements is a good idea in my book. In fact, I think too many people tend to over-use machines and isolation movements. Get back to the basics. Lift hard and heavy and you're good. jmho

I would buy a EZ curl bar just so my wrists could take a break but your basically good to go. Pullup bar would be nice but I do those on the playground right around the corner.

Alright... Thanks a lot guys I am really excited to have this setup going. Not only is it going to save me money in the long run, but it is also a heck of alot more convenient.
My split looks like this right now:
Monday - Chest/Bi
Tuesday - Legs
Wenesday - OFF
Thursday - Shoulders/Tri's
Friday - Back
Sat - OFF
Sun - OFF
Maybe a little light cardio on the off days (i.e. swimming mostly for me..)
I am bulking right now so not too much cardio. :hot:
And of course on all these days its going to be mostly barbell basic compound movements until I can get some DB's.
Let me know what you guys think.

You can add in some shrugs and seated calf raises.
